Garmin Pro-Staff – Johnston Brothers Notch Another Win!

Galway-Cavendish and Harvey-20140621-00644

For the Garmin fishing team of Corey and Chris Johnston, June ended on a fishing high note.  Corey and Chris have the latest Garmin fishing gear on their boat and competed in a Bass Tournament in Ontario on the Tri-Lakes, the Mighty Mucks Bass Open to be specific.  The yearly tournament takes place on Chemong, Buckhorn and Pigeon Lakes and Chris and Corey were among 95 other teams that were fishing for large and smallmouth bass.

After the dust settled and all the fish were caught, Corey and Chris had a final weigh-in of 21.15 lbs. which was good enough to win the tournament!  They took home a nice cash prize of nearly $5,000 and bragging rights over the other competing 95 teams.

Curve Lake First Nation 35-20140621-00639

On board, they used 2 GPSMAP 1040xs chartplotters, a GCV 10 sounder black box (for DownVu and SideVu sonar) and Canada LakeVu HD Ultra for mapping.

Great job, Chris and Corey!  Best of luck fishing the rest of the year!

About Bob Heil (source Wikipedia)

Bob Heil (October 5, 1940) is an American sound and radio engineer most well known for creating the template for modern rock sound systems. He founded the company Heil Sound in 1966, which went on to create unique touring sound systems for bands such as The Grateful Dead and The Who. He invented the Heil Talk Box in 1973, which was frequently used by musicians such as Peter FramptonJoe Walsh and Richie Sambora, and is still in use today.

Heil has been an innovator in the field of amateur radio, manufacturing microphones and satellite dishes for broadcasters and live sound engineers. In the late 1980s Heil Sound became one of the first American companies to create and install Home Theaters, and Heil has lectured at major electronic conventions and taught classes at various institutions.

He has won multiple awards and honors, and in 2007 he became the first manufacturer to be invited to exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

2014 Ham Radio Field Day report

As an  annual tradition the Amateur Radio community holds its annual field day event on the last weekend in June. This event showcases the spirit of ham radio in a friendly competition but more importantly prepares them for emergency operation by setting up stations in remote areas with nothing more then backup generatorsfor power etc…

It is nice to see the local media supporting this event by providing some great coverage in local community newspapers…

Here are links to three clubs  covered by the media

Peel/Mississauga clubs coverage

York Region club coverage

Why not contact a club next year and plan to attend one of these great events and get a taste of a great hobby.

Lowrance HDI Transducer Shields in Stock Now

hdi skimmerIf you plan to mount your new Lowrance HDI Skimmer transducer that came with your Elite unit on your trolling motor you should consider adding a transducer shield for this setup. On the new HDI transducer there is a plastic bracket that slides onto the transducer which is then attached to the mounting hardware.  This plastic bracket can be a weak link, should you accidentally hit an underwater obstruction.

The best way to avoid damaging the mount ($40 to replace) or even the transducer ($130 to replace) is to protect it with a Transducer Shield and Saver TSHDI2.  This is by far the best option out there to protect the larger HDI transducer.  These and many other Transducer Shield and Saver products are in stock at Radioworld.

Updated Navionics Maps for Lake Simcoe

If you haven’t seen the recent updates to Lake Simcoe on the Navionics+ chart you need to take a look.  The massive lake is finally done in 1′ contour lines and accuracy is excellent in the areas I have checked. These are a must have upgrade for the tournament angler this summer.  Here are some screen shots

simcoe 1 simcoe2

As you can see the fine detail is incredible so if you don’t have this chart you are going to be at a major disadvantage.

The Navionics+ card is a blank card formatted by Navionics to accept their mapping.  You can download maps for any lakes they have charted in North America.  You are only limited by the 2GB card size and 1 year subscription time frame.

These charts are in stock at Radioworld, check them out here –> Navionics+ Card
